Hi! It’s Friday, May 11, 2012 and time for a Virtual FieldTrip at ClickSchooling!
Sherlock Holmes Museum
Age Range: 10 and up (approximately, with parental supervision)
According to the books written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, detective Sherlock Holmes lived in a Victorian house at 221b Baker Street in London, England. The house is real and still exists today. It was built in 1815 and is now a museum dedicated to the life and times of Sherlock Holmes.
At this website, you can take a quick virtual tour of Sherlock Holmes’ study that has been faithfully maintained for posterity exactly as described in the published stories. See his armchair by the fireplace and his trademark calabash pipe, along with his magnifying glass, violin, chemistry equipment, and notebook.
When you get to the site, look for the menu on the left side of the home page. Click on the first item that says, “Museum Tour.” A new page opens with an introduction to the tour. Just click on the arrows to see the entire presentation.
This is a virtual tour that is sure to intrigue fans of the Sherlock Holmes mystery series!
